Acclaimed for their innovative sound and candid, evocative lyrics, Elbow has received vast critical acclaim and been endorsed by major artists such as Blur, R.E.M. and U2. Their debut album, “Asleep in the Back”, released on V2 in 2001 and was hailed as a seminal album of the new millennium, gaining them a Mercury Music Prize nomination and a BRIT Award nomination. Their second album, “Cast of Thousands”, released in 2003, sealed their reputation as innovators in UK music. In 2004, Elbow went on an unofficial tour of Cuba, becoming the first British band ever to play a concert outside Havana. The tour was made into a short film by British documentary maker Irshad Ashraf. Elbow will be doing a short U.S. Tour from April-May.
